Rock group Cocoa Otoko has announced on their official website that they will be disbanding next March.
They wrote, “It’s sudden, but we, Cocoa Otoko, will be disbanding in March 2012. Before we knew it, Cocoa Otoko became ‘a place of return’. But this was decided in order for the five of us to grow even more.”
Cocoa Otoko consists of five actors Kamakari Kenta (Vo), Hosogai Kei (B), Yonehara Kosuke (Dr), Suzuki Shogo (G), and Ide Takuya (Key). The band was first created for the variety program, “Ikemen Deru no Hosoku“, and they managed to place in 10th on the Oricon Daily Single Ranking with their debut single, “Amai Wana Nigai Uso…”
On December 14th, Cocoa Otoko will release their 5th single, “Sayonara ja Nakute / Seishun Ouka“, and they are scheduled to release their first album in January. To coincide with the album release, the group plans to hold a live tour in Tokyo, Osaka, and Nagoya.
at least they're releasing an album first. :(
